I've heard he had a daughter but I don't recall her name ever being known.

Yes, he did have a daughter but I am unsure if he had any other children.

Did women back then even have names? It seems, that usually they're just Lady Pan, and Lady Mu etc.

They had names, but only their closest family or relatives would know their names, and their names most of the time will not be recorded anywhere. In records, they usually are only recorded as Lady *** or something to that extent,

Lu Bu's daughter was mentioned in his bio, but her name isn't mentioned anywhere,

Perhaps she was executed along with Lu Bu?

If I remember right, somewhere in the first book it said that Lu Bu only had one child, and that was his daughter (though I don't think they gave a name). I'll see if I can find it when I have time.

Edit: Page 271 Chapter 16 3rd paragraph - "Lady Yan's daughter was Lu Bu's only child and the dearest object of his affections."

So he only had one kid, and that was a daughter, but we don't know her name.

I looked and didn't find the name of his child, but yes, it was a daughter and he tried to marry her with Yuan Shu's son so they could ally and lift the seige of Xia Pi.
